-I received the shns for this wonderful SBD from the philzone ftp server. The text file credited Paul Lucente for performing Edit 1 which was to splice set 2 back together from original discs. However, Paul added a fade between discs 2 and 3, but fortunately he overlapped the music. I re-joined discs 2 and 3 at the overlap so that set 2 is now completely seemless. I also fixed sbes and shortened with seek tables appended.

Peace. MattMan ( August 2003.

Subject: Barry Sless
barry sless is simply one of the best guitar players out there. not only does he channel jerry, but adds his own unique "country" style phrasing with crisp licks. i love kimock too, but he is jazz oriented. sless is king of the country sound. for newer heads seeking out the ghost of jerry i recommend DNB, after all, garcia grisman and nelson were all on bill monroe tour in the beginning! check out david nelson band 08-11-01 w/vassar clemens!

Subject: Sless is better
After listening to both of these shows with DNF, and the rehearsal in San Rafael recording, and being a Phil veteran, I can't believe I was so upset for so long about the Lesh/Kimock break-up. Clearly I am not the only one who considers Sless to have a truer Jerry sound/tone, as Barry was turned up louder in the mix both nights. The rehearsal Kimock is equally as turned up in the soundboard mix, but the conclusion is the same. Barry sounds more like Jerry than Kimock. Kimock is unbelievable at his own unique style but if you want to hear it how it was played in the old days with any authenticity, listen to both of these shows, listen to the guitar coming from the right, in the mix, it is Barry Sless. He is awesome. In my opinion, with the addition of Kreutzman,these might be the best shows post Jerry. My new dream band is EMC^2; Emergency Crew 2.: Lesh, Sless, Kreutzman, Hart, Hornsby, Weir. No Warren needed there, Phil and Bruce could pick up the ballads. Or if Bruce is out of the question, e.g. this spring Dead tour, just add Barry Sless as the second Lead, next to Warren for Jamming like Jerry purposes. I feel like a fool for believing Kimock was 'it' for so long. Clearly, anyone who knows GD music can hear the difference between Kimock's well known tone, and what it is that Sless has going on. He sounds like he actually gets off on knowing so many of Garcia's chops. Plus, what we do not get here is the MIDI that Barry brings to the table, ala post 89 Jerry.

Subject: Wow......
Where the hell have I been to have missed these shows?? (7/2 and 7/3) Oh yeah, Iraq....Well now that I am catching up, I am just overjoyed with the sound and content. The addition of David Nelson makes it superb. Thank you guys, for making one old dead-head's life a lot more peaceful.

Subject: Another night of bliss
It's a toss up as to which night is better. Both DNB/P & F shows smoke. Best bet is to download both. You won't be disappointed. I'm surprised this lineup didn't last beyond the Warfield run. It seemed like a natural.
